A few years ago, mobile phones were considered to be a luxury, but not anymore. In today’s time, they have become such an integral part of our lives that we can’t think of going on without them, even for a day. They have made our lives so much easier by enabling varied sorts of communication with a few clicks. In such a scenario, if a person’s phone stops working, even for a few hours, it sounds nothing less than a nightmare.
This happened recently with Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma. His iPhone X stopped working and all his attempts to restart the phone went in vain.
The entrepreneur took to Twitter to express his disappointment with iPhone X. He did not just say it but substantiated his trouble with a video. Here is what he tweeted:
My iPhoneX is in this state since yesterday evening. All, multiple combos of hold key press, haven’t worked to restart it ! pic.twitter.com/WgN39JrMAr

It was evident in Paytm CEO’s tweet that he was utterly displeased with the condition of his phone. His tweet grabbed social media’s attention in no time. While Apple neither took a note of his Tweet and nor did they reply to Shekhar, a few other techies did. These techies were top executives of mobile companies Xiaomi and OnePlus.
Grabbing the opportunity of asking Vijay Shekhar to ditch Apple and switch to Xiaomi, company’s Vice President Manu Kumar Jain replied to Shekhar’s tweet. Here is what Manu Kumar wrote to Vijay Shekhar:
Maybe it’s a signal – time to switch to the No. 1 smartphone brand in India! 😇
I would be happy to send one to you personally.

Soon, there was a reply from another tech giant. It was from mobile company OnePlus’s Twitter handle. Check out what the company wrote:
You won’t regret it. 😉

And here is how Twitter reacted to Manu Kumar Jain and OnePlus’s response to Vijay Shekhar’s tweet:
No wonder, he won’t miss his X pic.twitter.com/Ps3nKov3CB

It would be interesting to see if Paytm CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma, who happens to be India’s youngest billionaire, switches to any of these brands! Do you think he will ditch Apple and go for Xiaomi or OnePlus? Do let us know in the comments section!
